4th Annual Malic/Kramer Wisconsin Dells Trip: Part 1

I can't believe that the first time we went to the Dells with Katie and Eric there were no babies (well technically we both were pregnant) and now here we are with 4 kids. Man, time flies. This year we stayed in a villa at the Wilderness Resort. The Villa was really nice because it had a full kitchen and washer and dryer and plenty of space for 4 kids and all their stuff!!!! 

This is the first Weston and Brooke picture. Please keep in mind Brooke is only 26 days older. I have such tall and chunky babies!!!

I brought Glo-Necklaces, the kids loved them and immediately Blake turned them into swords :)

The weather was actually really mild and sometimes rainy so we stayed in the indoor pools the entire time.

Our sleeping beauty. Her swimsuit is too cute!

We do NOT have a water baby in Brooke yet. Any time her feet touched the water she cried. We will need to get her over it fast.

The best picture of Katie and I and the babies. They were more interested in each other than the camera

Family Filled Wisconsin/Michigan Weekend

This past weekend we went up to Marinette WI/Menominee MI to attend my cousin Nicole's wedding reception. She got married in Mexico but was having her reception since everyone couldn't make it down. Ironically, it was in the same place that my Grandma Picard lives. So it was one big family reunion!!

On Saturday my Grandma Picard hosted my Grandma and Grandpa Unti at her house so that the kids could play and my grandparents could meet Brooke.

My Grandpa and Blake kept making scary faces at each other. Blake LOVED it. 

On Saturday for dinner the Unti clan went out to dinner before the wedding. My Aunt Leslie got the kids toys and she got Blake this Spiderman ViewFinder and he thinks they are his superhero goggles!!

During dinner Blake and my Uncle Terry (my Dad's brother) really bonded over being silly and using the Viewfinder. At the reception, Blake was OBSESSED with him. He followed him everywhere and he wouldn't leave his side. Luckily my Uncle was a great sport about it. I find it very fitting because my Uncle Terry's daughter Darrina is in love with my Dad so it was nice to see. 

Me and the Bride. I wish I took more pictures but sometimes it is better to be in the moment than glued to the camera!

Malic Happenings

Our kiddos love school. Their teachers are the best and they truly have so much fun. The best part is that we get a report each day with pictures of what they did all day. 

It was bike day. Clearly Brooke didn't ride a bike but they pushed her along side Blake

This goofball makes such a silly face when you say "cheese"

That hair is so funny, love it!

Every Wednesday is water day, Blake is definitely a fan (he is in the middle)

I know I am biased but come on, couldn't you just eat her up?

Our 4th of July Weekend

Our 4th of July weekend started off with me turning the big 3-0!!! I took off on Thursday and Louis worked a half day (while the kids went to daycare). After I got my workout and mani/pedi in Louis and I headed to Lake Geneva. We went to lunch at Gordys and then sat outside for a drink at Pier 290. It was the perfect relaxing afternoon. My parents picked the kids up from school. When we got home I had a surprise waiting for me: Melanie and Maddie!!! Louis coordinated with her to have them come out and visit. It was so nice to see them.

We took the kids to the fireworks on Thursday night (my parents stayed and watched Brooke). Both kids had a lot of fun. Although the glo-necklaces that I brought weren't the best so next year I know better and will upgrade!! 

On Saturday night my parents and Louis' parents watched Blake, Brooke and Maddie (thanks again!!) so that we could all go out to dinner to celebrate my birthday. It was Louis, Me, Melanie, Katie, Eric, Colleen, James, Matt and Mary. We had such a fun time. The girls sat on one side of the table and the boys on the other. I don't think I have laughed that hard in a long time. :)

Brooke 4 Months

Our little Brookie Bean turned 4 months old on the 4th of July! She is growing so well. She is definitely getting interested in everything around her. She loves to watch Blake, he is her favorite. She is grabbing her toys and her bottle. Smiling and cooing a ton. She is wearing 6 month clothes and 9 month PJ's (she needs the length for the PJ's). Her hair is turning blonde underneath and she is still rockin' those baby blues. She has been battling a cough/runny nose for about 3 weeks now and it turns out the poor girl got her first ear infection. Hopefully the antibotics will kick in soon and help. She weighs 14 lbs 12.5 oz and is 25.5 inches long. 

This is the best 4 month photo of Blake that I could get that could easily compare the two. I definitely see some similarities between them.
